Oak Class have been reading ‘Into the Forest’ by Anthony Browne. They have then been describing forests using expanded noun phrases, adjectives and similes. Anthony Browne is infamous for hiding clues in the illustrations of his books and Oak Class have absolutely loved reading other books by him during Story Time and looking for hidden clues in the pictures. If you’re stuck on what books to get your child for Christmas, an Anthony Browne book will definitely be a winner!
